I'm happy to announce that I have begun writing a monthly comics newsletter featuring new releases and old favorites for Durham County Library! It's a "NextReads" newsletter, which is a collaboration between library staff and NoveList, a reader's advisory service that does this kind of thing for libraries across the country. Most NextReads newsletters are initially generated by the folks at NoveList with and then enhanced by library staff, but I'm doing mine from scratch, so you can send your complaints straight to me! Every month will include a number of new titles as well as a themed list of some sort; starting next month I'll feature a title that I (or some unsuspecting cohort of mine) would recommend for someone who's new to the comics scene.
Sign up for this and other Durham County Library NextReads newsletters by visiting our Reader's Corner page and clicking on the NextReads rectangle. And enjoy!
